Want to model for Addition Elle? You asked for it! If you haven’t heard the news yet, we’re having a Curvy Casting Call and are looking for one model for our website. All you have to do is submit your best head to toe photo for your chance to win! We’re looking for ladies within 2 hours driving distance of Montreal (i.e Montreal-area, Ottawa, Gatineau, QC City, Eastern Townships, etc) who could be our next ecommerce model. Many of you have been asking why these regions and the reason is our photo studio is located here in Montreal and the semi-finalists and winner will need to travel to us for the photo shoot.

10 semi-finalists will be asked to join us at our photo studio where we will be having a typical “test shoot.” Then, the winner will be chosen! The Grand Prize winner will get a $500 gift card to Addition Elle, a 1-day shoot for our website, and who knows…perhaps even the chance to continue modeling with us!

Want to increase your chances on being a semi-finalist? Here are some tips and tricks on how to take the best photo, and what catches our eye when looking through your photos:

  1. Natural lighting: take the photo outdoors or in front of a window that gives a lot of natural light. There’s no better lighting to make you look your best!
  2. Head to toe: Make sure your photo is a full body shot. We want to see everything you’re working with!  (No selfies please 😉 )
  3. Get a photographer: No need to hire a pro, but get a friend or family member to snap the shot for you instead of taking it in front of a mirror. The angle will be much more flattering.
  4. Go Au Natural: We want to see how you look before all of the primping. Show us your look with light natural makeup and hair.

Now get snapping! Semi-finalists will be chosen on May 5th, and we are considering all submissions so you only need to enter once. Make sure your Instagram profile is set to public so that we can see your submission and only use the hashtag on new pictures, please! Check out the rules & regulations here. We can’t wait to see your best pose!

    I am a size 14 and only 5″4 in height. Is there room for beautiful petite curvy wemon? Used to do print modelling when younger and skinny. Would love to get into plus size work to show that all wemon are gorgeous and we are here to stay.
